Artist's Description

Orange Clivia Miniata , taken at Heronswood Homestead, Dromana, Mornington Peninsula, Australia

The afternoon sun came through the overhead trees to shine right into the cup of the flower, a most unusual phenomena, a lucky capture!

Clivia miniata, also known as Bush lily, is a species of clivia, from South Africa. It grows to a height of about 45cm in the shade of trees and shrubs, and flowers are red or orange, with a faint, but very sweet perfume.
Clivias are named after Lady Clive the Duchess of Northumberland, whose grandfather was the famous Clive of India
